The hunt takes place exclusively on stalk by foot or by still hunt. We oppose shooting from the car. We hunt according to the principles of the Erongo Verzeichnis which emphasizes that we only hunt wild game in its historical habitat and that the game can escape beyond the borders.
A typical day of hunting starts with a breakfast and after that we usually drive out to the starting point of our stalk. There is usually plenty of sight during the drive and in a remote location we decide how to approach the game. Glassing of hills, dunes and mountains has often proved successful. The best thing to do is to hunt without a special target and to be surprised by what the hunting day has to offer. Approaching the game is not easy in Africa and stalking is often done in any kind of gait.
We try to keep the shooting distances under 150m, as after strenuous stalking the physical condition usually does not allow long shots. Most shots on game are fired from the shooting stick and this should be practiced beforehand by each hunter: standing, sitting and even lying down.
In the hottest part of the day you return for three hours to the house where a freshly prepared lunch is waiting. In the afternoon a similar program applies as in the morning. If day trips on zebra or hunting in neighboring areas take place, a food box and soft drinks are packed and you usually return home after dark.
Caliber and bullet choices are best discussed with the professional hunters before the trip.
